I will report on recent research funded by my National Teaching Fellowship award on relationships between the personal values and creative strengths of individual teachers and their feelings of resilience and fulfilment in teaching. Using informal and friendly discussion and a definition of values as fundamental beliefs that act as guides to action at all levels of life I will summarise findings from a wide range of inspiring conversations with teachers working in ‘values creating’ schools in Asia and Africa. I believe my initial findings raise issues fundamental to curriculum learning and teacher retention in the UK.
